Grilled Shrimp, Chicken or Vegetables
For Shrimp use thawed uncooked shrimp P/D (peeled and deveined).
If you would rather use chicken, use skinless boneless breasts and
cut them into two inch cubes.
Skewer up the protein (shrimp or chicken), some vegetables (cherry tomatoes, zucchini, peppers, partially cooked small potatoes or cut onions).
Remember to skewer them in groups of the same kind.
While it is popular to put a variety of items on each skewer, it is better by far to grill items in groups of the same food on each skewer so that they will be cooked at the same time.
For example, if you put shrimp, chicken and tomatoes on a skewer, the tomatoes will be cooked first, next the shrimp, and finally the chicken.
When the chicken is done, the tomatoes will be falling apart
and the shrimp will be overcooked and rubbery.
LIGHTLY marinating shrimp/chicken will add flavor with little fat or calories. Using Olive Oil, BRUSHED ON will add a little “good” fat.
VINEGAR also adds a lot of flavor with little or no calories or fat. Some people even believe there are certain health benefits to vinegar. Sprinkle with a little flavored vinegar.
Sherry, balsamic, sage and stronger vinegars go well with chicken.
Milder vinegar (white balsamic) lets the shrimp flavor come through. Brush with a light amount of Olive Oil or canola oil.
Adding fresh or dried herbs to protein can add a lot of flavor without the fat.
For shrimp use basil or oregano. For chicken use basil, oregano, sage or tarragon.
